speedometer interchange information?

so im putting a toyota transmission and transfercase in my 4.0 YJ. i know that the 4.2 yjs used a cable driven speedometer.

i have 2 questions
1. I know some people have swapped over to toyota cases, how are you running your speedometer/odometer?

2. will a 4.2 speedometer replace a 4.0 speedometer without modifying the gauge cluster?

The speedo reads from the transfer case not the engine. So yes a 4.2 speedo a 4.0 speedo and a 2.5 speedo are the same speedo's

no thats not correct. 4.2 era wranglers had a cable driven speedo. 4.0 era wranglers have a speed sensor

No it was cable driven through 91. In 92 the electronic speedos started. So I will be more precise. 4.2, 4.0, and 2.5 up to 91 are all the same. 91 had a cable driven speedo and an electronic sensor for the ECM. The speedo itself is still the same though. If you want to verify this just look up part numbers on your fav auto parts store website.

Ah I see now that I was wrong, thanks! So I could, theoretically use whatever sensor that's used and just figure out a way to adapt the cable and still use my stock 93 speedo?

Misspelling.

The mount hole and dimensions for the gear depth are the same since before the early 80's across many brands. Most bbrands actually, I believe.

Okay cool that makes sense. I just bought a 77 cluster on eBay, speedo looks to be about the same size or close at least. Well see how it works! Thanks guys!

seems to have worked!

77 toyota speedomeeter on righ jeep on left. they have almost exactly the same speed range so it should work perfectly.



mechanisms similar in size



looks factory! only difference is the yota doesnt have a trip meter, so i covered up the other slot. I clamped the two together and redrilled the jeep face for the toyota holes. everything is toyota except for the face


cant even tell



back dremeled out
